  1. thanks guys all up and running ,,and thank to you cuthound ,i was not holding .the themo thingly in long enough .nor was i lifting the float lever .and you know what they also say ...every day is a school day ,and thanks again
  2. hi cuthound thanks for getting back to me .if i could explain ..i put the meths in light fire then after a couple of mins it kicks in and runs great for abt 10 mins .then goes out ..it was running fine before i decided to give a good clean , i have not messed with the two little brass screws as i was told never to mess with those by the guy i got out to set the fire up and too which he had set them .when i cleaned the fire i took the float out and the other bits to give them a good glean maybe i have not put them back right ,but to be honest i dont see how i could have got that wrong as it went back the same way it came out .any ideas thanks again
  3. its the thingy that controls the imput of the oil that feeds the fire .no need to pray tho lol theres more worthwhile thinks to pray for ,,,,i,e the bush fires in oz ,world wars .the use of plastic too name just a few ,thanks tho for your thought s

    reflek fire

    my enthusiasm dont need tempering ex.and i dont care in any way what the rest think ..i dont want that to sound nasty in any way ..its not ment too.but i can only say it how it is really .i just thought id put it out there .it as nothing to do with cost at all. was just amazed how much derv i am using .as for years i was told by boaters ..boaters who have been doing boating far longer then myself ,telling me you dont want a derv fire ..if i knew what i know now i would have done this from day one ..each to there own ..so i will leave this now ..and wish you all merry xmas.just to say if any one is coming up the wyley and essinton in the next few weeks theres afair amount of logs here pm if interested regards

    reflek fire

    hi luggsy your fire looks loverly a lot like mine but with out the rads ..and like you i love mine too ..but i am at odds with this tho there is now way i am using 10 gallons a week ,,i will gauge again over the next couple of weeks ...certainly a jerry can hold nearly 5 gallon ,,and when i need to fill them i never fill them up maybe just put in just over 4 gallon .and that last s a week ..or it could be i got my maths wrong ,,not one of my strong subjects ,,nor is spelling. or english but hey im warm lol

    reflek fire

    hi well my fire as been on for abt 6 weeks 24/7 why would i say that if it where not so ,its only my assumption that i am using abt 3 gallon it could be more it could be less .,i have not gone into as much details as your self im to busy watching paint dry ..but i take on board what you say ...as i would i do live on a boat ...i am just amazed how much it as used i am well chuffed i thought it would have been a lot more then that ..going by all the stories you here abt such sytems thanks

    reflek fire

    hi mat i have sent you a pm ok
  15. hi every one merry xmas to u all, well having sorted my relfek fire pot and regulator out, thanks to the guy from lockgate ..i have had it running non stop now for abt 6 weeks 24/7 only turning off once a week for a couple of hours to clean it ,and i have to say i have not a problem with it ,up too yet touch wood ...and as i have tried to gauge how much derv its using ..i would guess it abt 3 gallon a week ,which in my mind is nothing saying its being used 24/7 compared to the logs and coal i use to use. the great thing abt it. now dust now mess and all the other things that come with coal burner .the only down side to it is i do miss the look of my old coal fire ,,having said that thumbs up for the reflek
  16. hi there are you still wanting the brass helmet coal bucket if so get back to me   regards
